FAQ - Coir Logs for Erosion Control
Question: Hello, I need information on coir logs for erosion control and a quote on 95 feet with a 12 inch diameter. Does GEI Works sell erosion control logs long enough to cover my project?
Answer: Thank you for contacting GEI Works with your inquiry. Typically, coir logs are sold in 10-foot sections. This keeps them manageable and easy to install, while still providing substantial coverage. To meet the 95 feet of your erosion control project, you should anticipate funding 10 coir logs.
Coir logs for erosion control can be installed side-by-side to meet the requirements of longer projects, with the use of coir twine that biodegrades alongside the logs.
Coconut Erosion Control Logs are strong and flexible, capable of protecting restoration sites from further erosion while gentle enough to biodegrade over time and provide nutrients to the soil. GEI Works offers coir logs densely-packed and designed for superior filtration, covered by exterior coir mesh netting. Erosion Control Logs aid in the stabilization and re-vegetation of sites with steep slopes or exposure to waves or currents, which cause instability on a site.
GEI Works' coir logs for erosion control are designed to help sites withstand wave impact and other stormwater forces without deformation or loss of material ensuring maximum erosion prevention and bank support.

Erosion control logs not only protect against soil erosion, but also enhance plant growth and microbial activity. In flowing waterways like rivers and streams, they are placed directly on the bank, often retaining fill material or securing new channel alignment. In standing water, they are placed offshore to break waves and encourage sedimentation and re-vegetation. Coir logs for erosion collect and hold mineral and organic particles, provide a stable substrate which promotes root growth, and slowly biodegrade to create a self maintaining erosion prevention system.
GEI Works' coconut coir logs for erosion control are made from 100% decorticated coconut (coir) fibers compressed in a tubular coir mesh netting. The outer high tensile strength coir mesh netting is hand knotted for superior performance even in the most challenging site conditions.
